this about the 2012 victory: while obama, the president won re-election in a convincing though not huge way, the president lost a majority of congressional districts. mitt romney won them which tells you why the house remains firmly in republican control and why the politics of the house of representatives within each district is different from the national picture. so when the president sets forth to accomplish something from his agenda, members of the house look at it not in national political terms, but they look at it in local political terms. and in local political terms, things look very different. gregg: a democratic strategist is quoted as saying he needs wins, and he needs them soon. do you see any on the horizon? >> i don't. i think there's a possibility that he could bring some kind of immigration reform proposal off, but i think that at the moment looks like it's in very great jeopardy. he's going to take some environmental measures by executive order. it's not entirely clear how much he'll be able to accomplish that way. and whether that will improve his standing politically. t

option. president obama is reportedly mulling the possibility of pulling out all u.s. troops from afghanistan after 2014, according to a senior administration official. the reason? bad blood between the white house and the unpredictable leader of afghanistan, hamid karzai. jessica yellen has been digging in on this for us. how realistic do you think that 2014 comes and the u.s. has no troops in afghanistan at the end of the year? >> reporter: right now, jake, it seems to be just one of many options and they're not even close to a decision on this. it's one of those cases the press getting a little bit ahead of the story. as the president has made clear, he wants troops out by the end of 2014 but he wants to leave a residual force in afghanistan. the idea of this zero option is getting more of a public airing right now because of the disagreements between president obama and hamid karzai that have to do with the break down in talks over the security negotiations. this seems to be the airing of this so-called zero option, leaving zero troops in afghanistan, may be one way to put pre
